Mortal Changed or a bug?

    I was doing some faction fighting with a guildmate and we were fighting an archer zerg (the norm).

    After dropping a couple of them with synched dumps they started just spamming mortal strike to block our cross heals.

    Something strange happened then... I accidentally targeted my heal before the mortal wore off but the heal went through the mortal.

    He got mortaled again and I was still able to heal him. Did something change, was a mortal nerf put in under the radar or was this just a bug? After about 2 minutes of these jokers spamming mortal strikes and us still being able to heal through it they just ran away.

    Has anyone else experienced this?

    I've had those too Smurf, but this wasn't a bugged bar. I would hear and see the mortal strike hit my teammate, but the heal would go through.

    Sounds weird and very serious if repeatable - any server lines crossed?

    No server lines involved. Just by the Abbey clearing in Yew.

    I'll try to re-create the scenario tonight.
     
  7. That is kinda messed up, good for the person being mortalled but bad for the person doing the mortal lol

    If this is indeed an intended change it is a good thing. Spammed mortals do nothing but encourage running in pvp and discourages crosshealing and quality pvp in general. Players that have the ability to crossheal should not be penalized by allowing speedhacking archers or dexers to spam a move that completely negates one of a mages strengths(the ability to crossheal). Alot of these speedhacking faction guilds are made up almost completely of archers and spammed mortals play right into thier hands.
     
  9. Ive always thought mortal needs to be changed, like a timer put in as dismount does?

    Making the mortal strike do like 50% healing reduction has always made the most sense to me.

    It happens sometimes, it's very random and I doubt it's possible to re-create. Sometimes I've become "immune" to Mortal Strike by eating an apple when a mortal hits me and other times it just doesn't affect me at all (meaning you can heal "through" it).

    There's a bug with Bleed Attack as well.. sometimes you can become immune to it as well :)

    I've not been able to mortal the same person twice in a row so I'm not sure I follow.
    It takes the mana and makes the sound but the person doesn't get mortaled.
